The value of entertainment memorabilia can fluctuate fairly rapidly. Its value depends on what associations the object has, and who signed it. This can be a tricky endeavor. For example, an autograph from a film star on one item, might not be as valuable as the same artists signature on another. Also, signing increases the risk of devaluation of both the autograph and object – especially if it is an object with a high profile. For example, Dorothy’s ruby-red slippers would not command the price they do if Judy Garland’s signature adorned them like they were a pair of Michael Jordan basketball shoes. Some things do better on their own. The best thing to do is to consult with an expert in the field before getting the signature, and asking for a professional opinion.
